Ahmed is from Tarqoumia Village in Hebron district. He is married and a father of one daughter and five sons. Ahmed built a house and now he is putting on the final touches, such as painting and installing tiles.

Ahmed is an employee with a decent salary so he only needed a loan from FATEN to cover the rest of the expenses to get the house ready for him and the family to move in by the end of this year.

Ahmed's picture was taken in FATEN's office while receiving the loan.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
